Home Buying During Covid..How Does This Process Work?

Can Selling a property be safe during a pandemic? The short answer is yes. There are extra protocols to take and it depends on your level of comfort, preference etc.
The buyer market has a lot of demand and inventory is low so that definitely helps sellers sell for what they want..
We are seeing a lot of properties sell and also fall apart during inspection as buyers are very picky and want literally all repairs, big and small, completed before they commit to purchase.
This is good to know to manage your expectations if you’re looking at selling your property.
Lets start with safety protocols.
If you just want a quick cash sale, and don’t want 20 people coming through your property, then this may be a good fit for you.  Pictures and video will go a long way here.  You can sell to an investor , like us 🙂 and usually we can get an idea of our offer based on pics and video.  Typically we will still send a contractor or inspector to assess the property in repairs needed etc.  But we try to minimize how many people enter your home.  All of our representatives will follow social distancing and wear a mask if you prefer.
With a cash offer you will likely net less, than with a traditional sale.  And if its simplicity and quickness you want, cash offer may be the way to go.
If you’re ok listing it on the market to try and get as much as you can, there are safety protocols in this way as well.  Pre pandemic, realtors would send any and all buyers to view properties (after they have qualified of course) but that has changed a bit.
These days, buyers who view properties, have viewed all pics, videos of the properties and so they want to view and are more serious and ready to move forward.  Typically, buyer agents will make sure buyers are primed and have jumped through a couple hoops all ready to be sure they are ready to buy your property 🙂
Also gloves, masks, social distancing…all of these are followed during any visits.
